Summertime means game time

8 Jun

Alright, I’ll be honest.

This blog was created as a class assignment. The semester ended. The class ended. And then I plunged face-first into summer, controller in hand. Okay, I do things OTHER than game, but y’know. There isn’t much time for video games when the semester is kicking my butt. Or a social life. Or anything.

What I’m trying to say is that I am a slacker, a college kid, and I wanted to be unproductive for a while.

My internship is about to end. When the stress of that isn’t knotting up the back of my head, I’ll get back to posting things of substance.

Relevant things churning in my brainz that will soon be discussed:

  • Atelier Rorona is still not oppressive with its deadlines, y’babies. I will follow up my Rorona review after I reach the end of the game.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles is incredible. Great cinematography, attention to detail, voice acting, story, gameplay, scenery, everything. Man. I haven’t played a game like this for years. There is so much to do. I’m like sixty hours in. I’ll do a full review when I finish it.
  • I want to talk about otome games. Hakuoki (PSP), in particular. I’m a sucker for those. I’ve been thinking about doing reviews of the ones I’ve played on my PC (while struggling with text hookers and laughing over terrible translations), but since I don’t have a grasp of Japanese I won’t be able to judge them properly. Those will be silly and for fun.
  • 3DS things I am excited about, like Project Happiness, Fire Emblem, and Kingdom Hearts
  • I think Code of Princess is dumb
  • Project Diva at E3
  • I recently played Bastion. AMAZING. Not Japanese, but amazing. I’m breaking the rules of my little nichey focus. OH MAN. Sue me. Whatever, just play Bastion. The new Humble Indie Bundle’s got it. You have no excuse not to!
  • Other Japanesey and non-Japanesey things/games
  • jesus christ a giant earwig monster just crawled out of the stove and now it’s gone I swear to god it’s going to eat me if I never post again you know why holy crap where did it go oh god I’m leaving all the lights on please don’t come in my room you terrifying insect

Enjoy your summer, folks! I’ll be back soon (I hope).
